Clinical Experience
"“My fellowship year provided me the tools necessary to build my practice.
The attention to detail, always striving to give my best in the operating room, improving my surgical technique with dedicated preoperative planning and post-surgery reflection, Dr. Ahmad’s mentorship, and spending one-on-one time with him during Yankee spring training were invaluable. It is this type of experience that gave me confidence to start my practice. The mentorship does not end after the fellowship year; Dr. Ahmad is always one e-mail or phone call away from providing wisdom or feedback."
